Alfred Korzybski wrote his credo, "What I Believe" in 1948 at the invitation of Indian author/editor Krishna M. Talgeri for a book entitled The Faith I Live By, a "symposium" of essays with a list of invitees besides Korzybski that included Gandhi, Nehru, and Montessori, among others. The book seems never to have gotten published. Nonetheless, Korzybski made good use of the essay printed for distribution to Members of the Institute of General Semantics in September 1949 and...

Transcription of Five Lecture Presentations given by Alfred Korzybski in Los Angeles in June 1939 for the Los Angeles Society for General Semantics. Three introductory seminar talks (attended by Robert Heinlein) and two talks on "G.S. and Psychotherapy" and "G.S. and Education". What was behind Korzybski's working formula, "I don't know; let's see!"? These never-before published transcribed notes provide an excellent feel of Korzybski's presentation style and...

Subtitled "Non-Aristotelian Methodology (Applied) for Sanity in Our Time", this long out-of-print volume published in 1943 ((10 years after the publication of Science and Sanity) contains important papers presented at the 1941 Congress at the University of Denver.

A critical scrutiny of the foundations of mathematics (circa 1930) which, in the words of its mathematician author raises "far-reaching questions concerning the nature of the process of discovery in all scientific investigations." Carmichael, a friend of Cassius J. Keyser and Alfred Korzybski, embraced Keyser's humanistic understanding of mathematics which emphasized the importance to exact science of postulational methods, and accepted Korzybski's schema of the development of the...
